Abstract: This paper presents the construction and application of an approach called qualitative Archi Bond Graphs developed as a unified representation for building design that can be used for simulation. The construction of qualitative Archi Bond Graphs includes graphical representations and qualitative equations. Qualitative Archi Bond Graphs can be applied in the conceptual stage of building design.
